Build a ‘skillful organization’

Feed companies, large integrators and their suppliers typically hire well-qualifi ed personnel. Nutritionists and salespeople mostly have a bachelor degree or higher; many product managers and consultants have Ph.D.s, and on the management board, you will sometimes find masters in business administration or economics and finance.

Obviously, the feed industry in total represents a highly qualified business environment. This means anyone who wishes to join the feed industry is required to have a résumé showing a good educational profi le. Next to the personal fi rst impression, qualifi cation is the key selection criteria in a job interview. What happens to these qualifi cations during one’s professional life, though?

After the long thread of wellstructured education from kindergarten through college, the rest of life seems to be more or less learning by doing.
